Drone Lab

Jon Wheeler

Welcome to Drone Lab. Since the creation of this page, the music and the motivations behind the music have changed considerably. Drones continue to comprise a large amount of what gets hosted here, but melody and structure find their way into the mix. Loops, textures, more than a little noise... The tunes alternate, generally, between light and dark ambient. That wasn't part of the original plan, but right now it works well enough so we're sticking with it.

Explore. Download. Share. If you have a strong impression, good or bad, of any of the tunes hosted here, please leave a review.

Visit dronelab.blogspot.com and binauralbanjo.blogspot.com for more information about individual songs.

An Ebow and a Banjo. This was my second attempt, and accidental movements, slips, and such made for a rich variety of sounds.

Sound falls, muted by perception into white noise. An 8Hz beat and a relaxing drone. For the BB.

Some of these tunes were rescued from an impressionistic collection of New York City pieces. Others were written over the course of my wife's pregnancy. All have been arranged as solo guitar or banjo lullabies. The project was begun before my daughter was born, and only finished when she was nearly two.

A tune oriented toward a short meditation. Also, a return to first principles and a thought for what has been done. Analyses revealed a several beats on this one, but the target beat is 5Hz. Close your eyes. Keep the volume low. Let the beat do its thing.
